Emily D. Heaphy is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at Boston University’s School of Management. Emily conducts research in two areas. Her research on high quality connections articulates what positive work relationships are and how they make a difference at work. In a second area, Emily uses ethnographic methods – interviewing and observing people as they go about their work – to understand situations in which people need bureaucratic organizations to respond flexibly, such as when people encounter problems when receiving healthcare, or need to negotiate for time off from work in time-hungry occupations. Emily’s research has appeared in the Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Harvard Business Review, Hormones and Behavior as well as several edited collections. She is an Editorial Board member of Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, and Journal of Management of Inquiry. She teaches Negotiations and Leadership courses to MBA, undergraduate and executive students. Emily received her Ph.D. in Management and Organizations from the University of Michigan and a BA in Women's Studies from Wellesley College.
